I drove for Pride in 2017 and 2018. I found them to be an excellent company to work with and for. I really cannot think of anything that they could do better with the exception of their road training is a typical team driving setup but they aren't likely to change that due to the expense. I doubt you could find a better management team anywhere. As has been posted in this thread, I wrote up a bit about the orientation/training previously.

I start orientation with Pride on 15 feb 2021. I would like to hear from Pride drivers about it all.

So glad to hear this. I just got off the phone with one of their recruiters and was highly impressed. I know recruiters say what they need to, but this person seemed pretty upfront and honest, even when she said things that I didn't want to hear. I do think it will be my company of choice when I get started.

Vicki, in the case of Pride, I think you'll find that you can trust what the recruiters tell you to be accurate. I don't know whether this is still the case or not but when I was there the director of recruiting was also in charge of orientation - that is a sign of the confidence they have in what they promise - another is that the recruiting unit sits right in the open in an area accessible to drivers and they have no way to hide. They aren't going to want to lie to people. Another thing is that with Pride there really isn't anything to lie about. They just do everything well. I won't recite details again, they're in my prior training wrap-up and details can change from time to time. But Pride is truly a driver's company. The founder was a trucker that decided to grow and he stayed. When I was there he was still working although his son had been named president. Founder Jeff was actually still driving part-time, still came out and talked to drivers, and wanted to be known as the trucker that he was. He pulled into work every day driving a simple pickup truck and arrived early in the am. On my one-year anniversary with the company, he called me to thank me for driving with Pride. I was told that he calls every driver every year on their anniversary. If it weren't for my need to control my schedule more as I described, I'd have stayed there as long as possible.

Mr. Reid thank you for the input. You confirmed what I have mostly found researching the web for 3rd party confirmation. If I may ask you this...would you go back to them today if your circumstances allowed?
